Analysis of Network Protocols in an NS-3 Simulated Environment

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Project Scope: In this project, several network protocols will be examined in environments simulated using ns-3. Wireshark will be used as a protocol analyzer to dissect the traces gathered. Several test networks will be built up in ns-3 and traces gathered during their operation. The protocols of interest are Ethernet, IP, ARP, DHCP, ping, traceroute, TCP, UDP, HTTP, FTP, POP, SMTP, OSPF and BGP. For each protocol, one or more packet traces
    will be collected and analyzed. A variety of topologies will be built as the protocols need to be seen working in realistic settings. For example, a simple point-to-point connection with a serial link would suffice for Ethernet while two or three autonomous systems would be required for a reasonable BGP simulation. *Publication date not found.
